On Monday 3rd November, following presentations to year 12 and year 13 students, the Anthony Nolan trust ran a signing up sessions for students to join the database for bone marrow donation. We are really proud of our student's response. 56 year 12 and year 13 student registered to be a life saver. Some were not compatible and many more took away information for blood donations.
Many thanks to everyone, including The Anthony Nolan trust for the informative presentations
As the season comes to a close the athletes, parents and coaching group can reflect on a year of hard work that has been rewarded with the most successful season yet for the Nottingham Canoe Slalom TID Academy.
From the new intake every paddler that remains in the programme has achieved or far surpassed their end of season target (the first time this has ever been achieved by a whole year group). Liam Brown and Archie Symes have continued their record breaking progression that they set at the start of the year, with Liam gaining promotion to Division 1 C1 (1 year ahead of target) and Archie gaining promotion to Division 1 K1 (again 1 year ahead of target)
Earlier this year the Rushcliffe Academy Trust became the Trent Academies Group with Mr. Crompton operating as Executive Headteacher across Rushcliffe and Farnborough. This week Arnold Hill Academy has asked if it can join the group following the resignation of their Principal in September. Parents of pupils at Arnold Hill have been informed.
This is in line with the current re-alignment of school governance across the country. Outstanding schools and academies are expected to work closely with those that are currently less academically successful. The relationship with Farnborough, which began in February, is already starting to bear fruit and it is now on track to emerge from Special Measures. Arnold Hill is not in Special Measures but their governors have decided the academy will be stronger if it works more closely with others.
There is a lot of expertise at Arnold Hill and Rushcliffe will benefit from the relationship. Rushcliffe itself will continue to operate as it is under the leadership of Mr. Lewis.
More information will be posted as it emerges.
